This is one of the new digital collage art charms I have just listed on my Etsy store. I have had the most fun with these, using vintage photos ,elements, ephemera, and findings . All of my favorite things.


"I Shop Vintage"
copyright Staffordshire Garden Designs 2008

This is one of my favorites. It pretty much says it all!
The back features shabby pink vintage wall paper from the 1940s.

Here in the Mid West I have found is a little different than California for Antique shows. The show season usually runs April through Oct. for outside venues. With a few very nice indoor ones in March. There are those markets that switch to indoors during the winter, but they are a little far for me to want to travel in this icky weather.
Another reason for me to long for spring!
Today is the second snow day we have had this week, and I am ready for some Spring blooms and Vintage shopping!
In honor of that "Spring" anticipation, I am going to have a giveaway.
I will be giving away the "I shop Vintage " pendant on Sunday March 2 . To sign up for a chance to win just leave a comment and I will add you to the "Hat" for the drawing.

  37. Shari, so very very happy to have found you!!

    Can hardly wait to receive my custom order.

    I am sure I will be staying awake nights dreaming up future projects as well.

    What an absolutely fun way to use photos of my little ones. Instead of tucking dear pics in the drawer--they are "wearable art"....

    How fun is that?

    Many thanks for putting up with me during the custom order process. I was floored by all the possiblities:)
